malibu family wines overview 

AT MALIBU FAMILY WINES, WE'RE PASSIONATE ABOUT CRAFTING UNFORGETTABLE EXPERIENCES AROUND AMAZING WINES. 

AT OUR TASTING ROOMS THROUGHOUT CALIFORNIA, WE BRING MORE THAN JUST SEMLER AND SADDLEROCK WINES TO THE TABLE.

WITH 80,000 VINES ON THE 1,000 ACRE SEMLER FAMILY RANCH NESTLED IN THE HILLS OF MALIBU, MALIBU FAMILY WINES PRODUCES MORE THAN 8 VARIETALS OF WINE BETWEEN THE SEMLER AND SADDLEROCK BRANDS. 

OUR WINE CAN BE FOUND IN STORES AND RESTAURANTS ALL ACROSS CALIFORNIA, AND TASTED AT FIVE DIFFERENT LOCATIONS THROUGHOUT SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA. OUR FLAGSHIP TASTING ROOM, MALIBU WINES, IS LOCATED JUST ACROSS THE STREET FROM OUR VINEYARD AND IS A DESTINATION SPOT FOR PICNICKING LOCALS AND TOURISTS ALIKE. 

TOURS OF THE VINEYARD AND SADDLEROCK RANCH ARE ALSO AVAILABLE WITH MALIBU WINE SAFARIS, AN OPEN-AIR WINE TASTING TOUR COMPLETE WITH BREATH-TAKING VIEWS FROM THE RANCH'S MANY HILLS AND OUTLOOKS, AS WELL AS ENCOUNTERS WITH THE MANY EXOTIC ANIMALS, FROM TIMONE AND PUMBA THE LOCAL ZEBRAS, TO STANLEY THE GIRAFFE.  

 

More on the wines (Semler and saddlerock labels) 

CALL IT SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA IN A BOTTLE. PERFECTLY POSITIONED AT THE CREST OF THE SANTA MONICA MOUNTAINS, THE VINEYARDS ARE QUITE UNIQUE: THE ROCKY TERRAIN AND STEEP SOUTH FACING SLOPES PROVIDE THE PERFECT ENVIRONMENT FOR GROWING PREMIUM WINE GRAPES.

PLANTING BEGAN IN 1997 WITH 14 ACRES OF CABERNET AND MERLOT. TODAY THE HILLSIDE VINEYARDS CONSIST OF APPROXIMATELY 80,000 VINES ON 85 ACRES WITH EIGHT VARIETALS. VARIETALS PLANTED ARE CABERNET SAUVIGNON, CABERNET FRANC, MERLOT, SYRAH, SAUVIGNON BLANC, MOUVEDRE, GRENACHE, VIOGNIER AND MALBEC.

AS A JOINT FAMILY ENDEAVOR BETWEEN THE SEMLER FAMILY AND THE DEJORIA FAMILY, WE TAKE GREAT PRIDE IN THE GENTLE-HANDLING, TRADITIONAL TECHNIQUES THAT GIVE OUR WINES THEIR SPECIAL CHARACTER. WE HOPE YOU ENJOY OUR WINES AS MUCH AS WE ENJOY CREATING THEM!

 

semler family ranch 

THE FASCINATING HISTORY OF THE PROPERTY DATES BACK SOME 300 YEARS WHEN THE VAST EXPANSE OF LAND SURROUNDING THE SANTA MONICA MOUNTAINS WAS PART OF THE ORIGINAL SPANISH LAND GRANT. THE 200,000-ACRE SITE IS A PERFECT SPOT FOR RAISING SHEEP AND CATTLE. UP UNTIL THE 1930S THE AREA WAS KNOWN AS EL MALIBU.

LOCAL CAVES ARE STILL COVERED WITH PICTOGRAPHS PAINTED BY THE CHUMASH INDIANS, WHICH DATE BACK TO THE PORTOLA EXPEDITION OF 1769. THESE PICTOGRAPHS HAVE BECOME VERY RARE DUE TO EROSION AND WEATHERING, BUT SOME OF THE MOST WELL PRESERVED EXAMPLES REMAIN ON THE SADDLEROCK RANCH PROPERTY AND HAVE BEEN STUDIED BY ARCHEOLOGISTS AND PHOTOGRAPHED FOR BOOKS.

TODAY THE RANCH IS HOME TO MALIBU FAMILY WINE’S OFFICES, FOUR WEDDING AND EVENT LOCATIONS, 100 ACRES OF VINES, A HOST OF EXOTIC ANIMALS (ZEBRA, CAMEL, GIRAFFE, LLAMA, ALPACA, YAK, HIGHLAND COW, ETC.…), MALIBU WINE SAFARI TOURS, AND THE SEMLER FAMILY!

MALIBU WINE SAFARIS OFFERS VARIOUS TOURS OF THE RANCH, WHICH INCLUDE INTERACTION WITH SOME OF THE ANIMALS AS WELL AS WINE TASTINGS AT SOME OF THE RANCH’S MOST STUNNING VISTAS.
